Finally get to play these pretenders in a game that's not Origin effected or we aren't resting the whole squad.

Panthers 20+

Cowboys “Defence” jersey.

I thought they were meant to honour the ANZAC’s ???
That Cows jersey seems to be a contradiction in terms going by their last outing. I don't think it's going to be the walkover some in here and the media think. Panthers are still working on their defensive structures, so I'm quite certain of a scoreline of around Panthers 24-12.

It's to remind the players that they need to defend. It goes in one ear and out the other, so they are trying a visual cue.

I think panthers will tear them up through the middle and create havoc out wide. Riff 38-10.

I get it that the Cowboys were terrible against the Sharks but I am not sure why people think this will be a blow out. Other than against the Roosters we have been average at best this year. Cleary returning should help but we were very clunky against the Tigers last week and got pumped by Manly before that. Our forwards this year have been nothing like the last few years.

Panthers don't really put on scores and this being in NQLD helps Cowboys. Similar score to the Tiger game I think, maybe an extra try or two to Panthers.
